Portuguese American Journal

Book: ‘My Portuguese American Kitchen’ – Editor’s Note

Most of my family memories revolve around food, especially family holidays, and everyone knows how important food and wine are in Portuguese culture. In My Portuguese American Kitchen, you’ll find classic Portuguese dishes. I have also embraced many American favorites, with a passion.

In My Portuguese American Kitchen, I share traditional recipes and some Portuguese inflected recipes that I cook for family and friends, recipes with a Portuguese accent. I also love the lighter bites, perfect with a glass of wine: salt cod puffs, or shrimp cakes. And I didn’t forget the sweets—from the moist and delicious coconut cake to the traditional Portuguese rice pudding. My Portuguese American Kitchen is packed with the food that I love and that you and your family will love too.

It’s a cook book that home cooks will reach for again and again. My Portuguese American Kitchen includes my very popular recipe, Stuffed Clams (Quahog Stuffie). Many have asked for this recipe and it’s the first time in print. Beautifully illustrated with color photographs throughout.

About the Author


Kevin Cordeiro was born in New Bedford, Massachusetts and grew up in Dartmouth, Massachusetts. Ever since I was four years old, since I could remember, all I wanted to do was cook. As a little boy I was not interested in racing cars or playing catch. I was interested in pots and pans and being in the kitchen. I love to cook and I share my easy Portuguese recipes from a collection of recipes over the years from relatives and friends. The result is mouthwatering! I share updated versions of popular recipes I grew up with in my Portuguese family. I’ll show you easy dishes that are perfect for every occasion, a weeknight meal, entertaining a crowd or a cozy dinner.
